Preserving history is incredibly important. We’ve seen repeatedly that if we don’t learn from our past, we’re doomed to make the same mistakes over and over again. As a country, we should never forget where we’ve come from, and what we’ve gone through to get to this point. That being said, there is a turmoil permeating our entire society that’s turning us into a giant powder keg. The atmosphere in the U.S. right now is downright terrifying; you can almost feel the hate and fear in the air. With the rise in white nationalism, and our “president’s” unwillingness to condemn such ideologies, it’s dangerous to keep monuments glorifying those who fought for slavery out in the public eye. If our country wasn’t being overtaken by racist violence, there would be no need to tear down Confederate monuments. Trump’s comments that monuments of George Washington or Thomas Jefferson might be next are completely unfounded. Under normal circumstances, I wouldn’t think twice about Confederate monuments, but considering the atmosphere we’re living in today, I can understand why people want them gone. Our history is important, but we should not be celebrating those parts of it that were defined by the suffering and oppression of whole groups of people.
